be released. yet 83% of americans said they supported the president's use of drone strikes. i'm wondering is there any public pressure to be more transparent? is that going to happen now? >> that's really interesting. i mean, you cited that poll, 83% of folks agree with the drone program, its use at least overseas. there's a difference if this is used on our soil here, certainly no backing for that among americans, but so far you haven't seen the outcry of a public outcry in terms of this program being used to target americans overseas. i think this is the first big public airing of this issue that we've seen. we'll see obviously brennan take it up today and perhaps after that you'll have americans raising some concern, but so far there has been bipartisan concern i think on the hill. it hasn't extended to the american public, and even in some ways you have had a situation here where republicans have been the fiercest supporters of this program. some folks saying what about democrats also being in the president's corner if this was bush doing the same thing? would they have had a differen
justification for using drone strikes to kill american citizens. >> this is an encouraging first step, and especially because it comes at a time when the lines have blurred between the military and the intelligence field, and it's going to be so important to do robust congressional oversight in order to protect both our security and our liberty. >> senator widen is one of the senators who was pushing for the release of more noftion and it comes just hours before the confirmation hearing for john brennan. the white house counterterrorism adviser was the architect of the president's drone policy and one of its biggest defenders. >> it's this surgical precision, the ability with laser-like focus to eliminate the cancerous tumor called an al qaeda terrorist. >> i want to bring in "the washington post's" political reporter nia-malika henderson and politico's white house reporter carrie brown. good morning. >> good morning. >> this issue has been simmering for a while. why did the white house decide to do this now? >> well, this wasn't about to go away for the president and it was particula
to reform our tax good. bring down the rates for all americans to make it fair. they expect us to continue to expand american energy production throughout our count country. it will give us a huge advantage if we continue to develop our energy resources. and i think most americans believe that we have to stop government overregulation that's strangling our economy and economic growth. last night the president offered up more of the same. higher taxes and more stimulus spending. and just as disappointing, we're weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan to lieliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. republicans have twice passed bills on the sequester. it's upon democrats to show us their plan to stop the e sequester from going into effect. >> good morning. house republicans this year are going to be about making life work for more american es. now we intend to go forcefully with a plan to help folks in terms of education, in terms of health care, in terms of facilitating better work and better opportunity. now last nigh
, the poll shows that the win is essentially at the back of advocates for new gun laws but can they use the public sentiment to their advantage and if so how? >> i think the senate is still a very tough lift on these, particularly on the assault weapons ban. i think, you know, most people think realistically the only thing that could happen is the legislation on background checks. you know, these national poll numbers really don't give you a very good reflection of, you know, the united states senate, where, you know, it's -- people from rural states have the sort of disproportionate influence in the senate. it's 100 senators, two from each state and the national poll numbers don't reflect the political reality a lot of these guys see at home. >> i'm wondering since it has been generally accepted background checks were more likely than the assault weapons ban how bad is the sticking point they have? are they likely to push through it? >> it is pretty significant. tom coburn the republican from oklahoma is really key to these talks. chuck schumer the new york democrat is trying to get co
really ought to stop come paining and come back to the take and work with us. >> and while there are no 11th hour meetings, no real negotiations, but lots of finger pointing, the president says there is still time for a deal. >> here's the thing. these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little bit of compromise. >> john boehner has just come to the microphones. let's listen. >> i don't think the president's focused on trying to find a solution to the sequester. the president has been traveling all over the country and today going down to newport news in order to use our military men and women as a problem in yet another campaign rally to support his tax hike. now, the american people know the president gets more money, they are just going to spend it. and the fact is, he has gotten his tax hikes. it ti it's time to focus on the real problem and that is spending. the president has known for 16 months that this sequester was looming out there. when the supercommittee failed to come to an agreement. and so for 16 months, the president h

't think it hurts him or really helps him that much either way. it gives us something to talk about. but i think the issue is larger than this photo. it's really about the substantive proposals on the table. i think the president is smart if he doesn't push too hard on the assault weapons ban itself. there isn't much support for that in congress. but what there is support for is universal background checks and perhaps cracking down on some of these traffickers who freely move guns from states like north carolina to states like new york, where they have big cities and tougher gun laws. >> you know, ruth, when it comes to legislation it seems like other than the nra, there is some agreement on universal background checks. harry reid saying he supported it and a quinnipiac poll showing near 100% support for it in virginia as you look at the numbers right there. also new jersey and pennsylvania, a lot of support. is this where lawmakers can find some common ground right now? >> absolutely. i was at a breakfast with nra president last week sponsored by the christian science monitor and i asked
